From Cantor to Klezmer

The term "Jewish music" is recent, and appeared in music literature in the 20th century. In her lecture, Ruth Frenk gives a brief overview of various aspects of "Jewish music". She talks about synagogue music, which is really the only music that can be described as "Jewish" and gives examples of Ashkenazi, Sephardic, and Hasidic folk songs, the music of the Yiddish theater, ghetto and resistance songs, folk and art songs of Israel and the currently very popular klezmer music.
